Samsung sues Apple over patents

Seoul - Samsung Electronics Co says it has filed a second patent lawsuit against Apple Inc in South Korea, alleging infringement of tablet and smartphone technology.

Samsung said on Thursday that the lawsuit filed earlier this week in Seoul alleges that Apple's iPhone 4S and iPad 2 infringe three of Samsung's patents.

Samsung's lawsuit comes as Apple unveils its new iPad in the United States this week.
